    New LinkedIn Users Will Benefit from the Easy Dummies Approach

    I am not someone who wants to spend too much time trying to figure out how to get the most utility from the yet unknown values of Social Networking. LinkedIn for Dummies made the start-up and key success factors simple to scan, do and look good. It took less time and was more clear than the other four books that I looked at before buying LinkedIn for Dummies. Worth the purchase price and the time.
